**I do not own the rights to this content** Season 1, Episode 11 Neighborhood Featuring The Whole Loaf Theater When the kids are bored, Sharon, Lois & Bram, Elephant and Eric Nagler decide to explore what there is to do in their neighborhood. -------------------------------------------- Sharon, Lois & Bram Sharon, Lois & Bram is a Canadian children's musical trio composed of Sharon (Trostin) Hampson (born March 31, 1943 in Toronto), Lois Ada (Goldberg) Lilienstein (born July 10, 1936 in Chicago, Illinois), and Bramwell "Bram" Morrison (born December 18, 1940 in Toronto). The music group was formed in 1978 in Toronto. -------------------------------------------- The Elephant Show The Elephant Show features the adventures of the Canadian singing trio Sharon, Lois & Bram and Elephant (Paula Gallivan in an elephant costume). Elephant doesn't speak, but is voiced by a tuba (played by Scott Irvine), which conveys thoughts and mood by its pitch and inflection. The four are usually accompanied by a group of children and a sidekick, Eric Nagler. Every week Sharon, Lois & Bram along with celebrated family entertainer, Eric Nagler are joined by the curious and fun-loving antics of their pachyderm pal Elephant and such renowned guest artists as: Toller Cranston, Louis Del Grande, Jayne Eastwood, Murray McLauchlan, Chuck Mangione, Andrea Martin, The Nylons and Jan Rubes. Almost every episode contains a concert segment, featuring Sharon, Lois & Bram and Eric and the Mammoth Band. They sing songs and help children with their problems (including arguments, fear and the failure of plans). In most episodes, the group travels to a new location (such as a zoo, hospital, or museum). They occasionally stay home and have an adventure in their yard (like building a tree fort and encountering a grumpy neighbour). The show occasionally includes a social lesson (such as a pro-UNICEF discussion). Sharon, Lois and Bram appeared in advertisements during the show's original run, encouraging parents to vaccinate their children against polio, rubella and mumps. Each episode concludes with the song Skinnamarink. -------------------------------------------- Eric Nagler Initially, Nagler was a folk musician in the United States, and in 1966 he marched through Mississippi with Martin Luther King Jr., encouraging people to register to vote.[1] He married fellow musician Martha Beers in 1966 and due to their opposition to the Vietnam War they moved to Toronto in 1968, Nagler as a conscientious objector to the war. In 1972, Nagler returned to the United States to stand trial for draft evasion; he was acquitted.[1] Around 1971, Eric and Martha owned a guitar/folk-music store on Avenue Road in Toronto called the Toronto Folklore Centre. The couple divorced in 1977. Nagler was remarried to Shelley McCarthy in 1985 and according to his personal website currently resides near Shelburne, an hour north of Toronto, Ontario, and home of the Annual Canadian Championship Fiddling Contest. Nagler plays a variety of instruments, often homemade or improvised, in the skiffle style. In addition to common traditional instruments such as the banjo and fiddle, and singing, he uses simple instruments such as washboard, spoons, jaw harp, and slide whistle (and provides instructions on making them on his record Fiddle Up a Tune), together with more exotic instruments, such as the psaltery. Most unusual is his "Sewerphone", made of 10 feet of ABS plastic and the agitator from a clothes washer, and functions similarly to a tuba, as described in his "My Lovely Sewerphone" (Come On In! 1985). --------------------------------------------
